ZAP Wanderlust: Canyon Ranch, Tuscon

2-clubhouse A few weeks ago, I went on a long weekend trip to Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Arizona. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Canyon Ranch is a recognized leader in healthy living and luxury spa vacations. But, according to the Ranch’s founder, Mel Zuckerman, SPA stands for “Special Personalized Adventure” and, after visiting, I can say that’s definitely an accurate statement. The Ranch is part fitness focused, part relaxation focused, and 100% awesome. Here’s a snapshot of what they offer:


Fitness Classes: Canyon Ranch specializes in fitness, so of course they offer everything under the sun when it comes to classes. From yoga, to cardio circuit classes and even something called Surfset Fitness, you can truly find anything you’re looking for. Each week has a schedule of classes offered every hour of the day, so you can create your own schedule according to your desires.


Cooking Courses: The Ranch is also known for their amazing (and healthy!) cuisine created by onsite nutritionists and health professionals. For those looking for some hands on training, you can take classes and learn from the staff about tips and tricks for creating some of their signature dishes.


Wellness Seminars and Personal Coaching: If you’re looking for personal advice on fitness, eating habits, diet recommendations, etc., Canyon Ranch also offers personals consultations and seminars to help you get on the right track.

And of course, how could I forget to mention their world class spa? I’ve been to my fair share of spas over the years and this one is definitely at the top of my list. Trust me…or go ahead and plan your visit to see for yourself!
